Lovely Lanterns

This half term Louise Pasquill worked on some beautiful tissue and paper straw lanterns with our youngest artists.

We folded the straws to build our cube frames, added decorated walls made from tissue and cut out windows.  The lanterns create patterns when the light shimmers through the translucent materials.
